Walter Russell Mead is the James Clarke Chace
Professor of Foreign Affairs and the Humanities at
Bard College. Prior to joining Bard's faculty, Mead
was the Henry A. Kissinger senior fellow for U.S.
foreign policy at the Council on Foreign Relations.
He is also a founder of the New America Foundation,
one of the country's Preeminent think tanks. His
blog, "Via Meadia," is widely read.
Mead's 2001 book, Special Providence: American
Foreign Policy and How It Changed the World,
was widely hailed as an important study that
would change the way Americans and others think
about American foreign policy. Among several
honors and prizes, Special Providence received
the Lionel Gelber Award in 2002 for the best
book in English on international relations.
His most recent book, God and Gold: Britain,
America and the Making of the Modern World, is a
major study of 400 years of conflict between
Anglophone powers and rivals ranging from absolute
monarchies through Communist and Fascist
enemies in the twentieth century to al-Qaeda.
Mead writes regularly on international affairs
for the today's most prominent newspapers and
magazines, and appears on national and
international radio and television programs.
